Cyril Vincent, who died on August 24, 1968, aged 66, was a left-arm spinner and capable lower-order batsman who played 25 Tests for South Africa between 1927-28 and 1935- However, he only ever played in two Currie Cup matches, apparently because he could not get time off work. He was renowned for bowling long spells tirelessly. At Durban in 1930-31 he took 6 for 51 against England to secure the rubber for South Africa and he had match figures of 8 for 149 in the Headingley Test of 1935.
